Forum: GratefulDead Subject: So what needs to be released?

Its possible this topic has been whooped on before, but I figured I'd give it a try.

What needs to be released from the vault?

I'm quite happy with Dave Picks vol.2, but I'm a '74 fan first and foremost. I already had a good quality recording of this show and honestly the sonic upgrade is slightly noticeable at best (to my ears anyhow). I'm still happy with the gorgeous packaging and I try to put money into the Grateful Dead machine to keep future releases coming.

Usually with a release like this I hear folks say "but it already circulates in A quality" or whatever, which is a valid counterpoint to some of the excitement of the pick. So back to my original question....

What would you want released?

What great shows circulate in sub-standard quality that need a sonic upgrade?

Are there shows that don't circulate that are worth releasing?

I'm guessing the multi-tracks of Veneta '72 are popular, but I'm curious to what else folks are hoping will come out of the vault someday.

Micah, and Cliff are on money here . My 2 cents, and I think I have mentioned these before , some more of that Academy of Music run in March of 72 ( fat chance with the E72 being fairly recent), and a wild card, those early 78, shows that , while Jerry, had laryngitis , Bob sang the whole shows, and Jerry played his ass off .
I know the tapes from 67 are extremely rare , but some sort of release would be great , if they could .
Thinking about some of the less traveled years, it is too bad the "Road Trips" series didn't do more in these areas that would have benefited from a "Highlights" approach , say 86, or 94-95 yes, if you carefully cherry pick, there is some interesting stuff here) .
I suspect that what we shall see some early to mid 80's Brent material next .
I might wager a guess, that next year you will see a spring 78 show, since Dave has always been big on that era . And early 69, or mid 70 (he loves those Pig "Good Lovin"s ).

This is assuming that the sound will be improved noticeably.

The seemingly endless plea of Anything in '68 and why not look at a '67 while your down in the primal ooze.

6-24-85 2nd
7-1-85 2nd
10-12-84
Frost '82
9-6-80

All of these shows "need a sonic upgrade".

Veneta '72 would be welcome as long as they burn 25K copies.

I've been listening to the Oade version of 10/12/84 for over 25 years. I think it may have become imbedded in my DNA. something tells me that if they were ever to release an upgrade to this show, somehow it wouldn't sound right to me....

I guess I'm most familiar with Frost '82 as having some worthy magic.

I enjoyed your Summer '85 listening reviews and I'd be interested to see if a '85 release could provide some gems from an underrepresented year. I find the Dick's Picks from '85 uniquely charming (although I don't listen to it often) and would welcome more of that of magic.

The '84 and '80 setlists look nice. I would love to be surprised by some shows from those years that I haven't taken the time to listen to.

I hope they release some of your picks. Those are very underrepresented years!

The second set jam from 12-31-72 has for too long been inexplicably sitting on the bench.
In my opinion this 70 minute second set romp of utterly joyful music is second to none.
This was old-school second set stuff. Created on the spot for that night only- not the product of a more or less pre-fab performance template that got superimposed upon the evening.

A reviewer from 2008 puts it well:
"This is pretty close to the pinnacle of what they were capable of. The Truckin' > Other One > Morning Dew section contains one of the finest examples I've ever heard of creating new musical themes on the spot."

1981 Greek Theater.

I don't know if quality copies are in the vault, but the currently available stuff is middle to poor sound quality but excellent to mind blowing playing.

Help me out here. Are the Orpheum shows related to the record drop or coming out of Blues for Allah.I'm not into dates and times but I did go to an opening night there and they had a huge mural backdrop of the album cover.This was one of the better shows and could not be critical of what I saw and heard.

Blues For Allah was released 09/01/1975, and the famous Orpheum shows are in July, 1976. They could certainly have been using that backdrop, and these are some amazing shows

Hey LW--we were both there, and I may just be recalling it cause you just planted the memory, but I will confirm that there was just what you describe as a backdrop. Went to a few of those that July.

If I'm not mistaken no 1984 show has ever been released in "official" capacity. It's a fairly rocky year but there are some exceptions and I would second calls for the Augusta Maine shows of 10/11 and 10/12, but I suspect there is no base for a clean SBD version to even be spruced up. The AUD recordings are good but I would love to see a clean SBD version for those two nights.

Also the Berkeley show in '84 with the Dark Star encore is a pretty good one.

I agree Cliff that 76 run at the Orpheum is fantastic, I find myself being a 76 fan more so than 77.

I would love to see the December run of 1971 released in some form or another, all those shows are great and who dosen't love Pig sining Run, Run Rudolph!

I would like to see the New Year's run of 69 released

The 81 Radio City Music Hall shows are some of my favorite too

"Yes, a tuna export business that I owned went belly up in 1999. The business existed for seven years and during that time sold in excess of $13 million dollars worth of fresh tuna in Japan annually."

Do you really expect us to believe that you sold $93 Million dollars worth of Bluefin Tuna in seven years and went belly up?

Dude get a grip!!! Cliffty repeat this, I’m an fraud, liar and a thief !!!

I wonder what the hold up is on the '67 and '68 stuff. Out of all the Dicks Picks and Road Trips (over 50 releases total) they have released zero '67 picks and two '68 picks. We're due for a treat.

Its interesting how the second Hawaii show is so short on the archive. Was that all they played that night? You'd figure Dick would be all over those reels (if they existed) after he had lived in Hawaii.
